Books I Currently Have on Hold at the Library (2)

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! It’s been over 6 months since I did a post like this since my last one was in February. However, I think it’s really fun to do because I like to share what books I’m interested in and maybe recommend some to others. Unlike last time though, I don’t have as many books on hold so this is going to be a relatively short post.

Personally, my local library is pretty unsatisfactory. Instead, I got a library card for the Free Library of Philadelphia and it was free because I live in PA. I also have a non-resident card for Fairfax County. If you want to do the same, check out Kerri’s post. With all of that out of the way, let’s get into the books I currently have on hold. 🙂

1. American Royals

The first book I have on hold is American Royals by Katharine McGee. I’ve heard a lot of hype about this book and I decided to put a hold on it. Thankfully, the Philly library acquired a ton of copies so my hold is coming off soon. At this point, all I really know is that it’s an alternative history in which George Washington became king instead of the president and it follows the current monarchy.

I’ve heard that this book is great if you love romance and I do. Plus I’ve heard a lot of my favorite booktubers raving about it so I had to put a hold on it. I’m excited to see if it lives up to the hype.

2. Know My Name

This is the only non-fiction book I have on hold but it’s one that I’ve been eagerly awaiting to read. Right now, I have about 7 weeks until it’s going to come off hold but I don’t care as long as I get to read it. It’s a memoir written by the woman who was sexually assaulted by Brock Turner who only spent 6 months in jail. I imagine that it’s going to be an incredibly powerful read so I knew I had to put a hold on it as soon as my library had it.

3. Royal Holiday

Switching gears, I put a hold on Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory. Personally, I haven’t really loved any of her books but I’m not giving up. I really want to see that if she writes a romance with more mature characters that it’ll be better. I think that this book focuses on Maddie’s mother as the two go on Maddie’s work trip together. If I’m remembering correctly, this is pretty short so it’s going to be a quick read.

This is basically the last chance I’m giving Jasmine Guillory. As much as I want to like her books, I just don’t. Maybe this one will be different, but we’ll see. Right now, I’m looking at 10 weeks of waiting so 😛

4. A Lesson In Thorns

The last and most recent book I put on hold is A Lesson In Thorns by Sierra Simone. If you’ve watched any Booktube videos lately, then you’ll see this book being talked about like crazy. Since hearing about it, I’ve been intrigued by it. I was originally planning on buying it but my library came in clutch and just added it on Tuesday. I immediately put a hold on it and I might put a hold on the other books if hers they have.

Either way, I’m super excited to read this book and to see if it ends up being as great as everyone says it is. I know that it isn’t for everyone but I’ve heard the smut is just wonderful so I’m basically dying to read it.


Those are all the books I currently have on hold. I tried to slow down a little bit since I have a few physical books on my TBR that I need to read. Regardless, I’m crossing my fingers that these books end up being new favorites for me. 🙂

Books I Currently Have On Hold at the Library

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! It feels so weird to not be making a Top 5 Tuesday post but I’ve been trying to come up with some unique ideas. When I was talking to Ellyn, I threw this idea out to her and she said it sounded awesome. I rarely talk about my library but now that I’m on a book-buying ban, I’ve been using my library more and more.

Personally, my local library is pretty unsatisfactory. Instead, I got a library card for the Free Library of Philadelphia and it was free because I live in PA. Then I tried out Scribd and it was overpriced for being limited. To make up for that, I got a non-resident card for the Fairfax County. If you want to do the same, check out Kerri’s post.

With that being said, I’ve been putting holds on books like crazy. I won’t be talking about which books are from which library. Instead, I’ll just be talking about all the books I have on hold and ones I might put a hold on 🙂

1. Always Never Yours

The first book I have on hold is Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka. I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this book via Booktube and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Originally, I was going to buy it but I held off in case I didn’t love it as much as everyone else did.

I know it’s a contemporary and a Shakespeare retelling. Other than that, I’m pretty much clueless and I want to keep it that way. Lol

2. The Governess Game (Girl Meets Duke #2) 

Right at the end of January, The Duchess Deal came off hold and I really loved it. It cemented my love for Tessa Dare and historical romance. Technically, I’ve only read 2 of her books but I loved them so much. There’s no way I couldn’t place a hold on the second book in this series as soon as possible.

I’ve heard this one isn’t as good as the first. However, I’m basically #trash for Tessa Dare now so I’ll read anything of hers. If I remember right, I have a few of her books on hold so be ready 😛

3. A Princess In Theory (Reluctant Royals #1)

Full disclosure: I have this book on my shelf but it’s a mass market paperback. I started to read it but I can’t handle small font. Instead, I put a hold on it at the library so I could read it on my Kindle. At first, it was a 5-week hold but now it just went to 8 weeks so I’m not sure what’s going on.

No matter, I’m really excited to read this. I’ve heard so many people talk about reading this for almost all of the February read-a-thons. I’m crossing my fingers that I love it as much as everyone else has.

4. A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove #1) 

As I’ve already mentioned, I have a lot of Tessa Dare on hold. This one is the first book in her Spindle Cove series and I’m pretty nervous. I’ve heard a lot of people talk about how this is their least favorite book by her. Once again, I don’t know anything about it so maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

5. A Duke By Default (Reluctant Royals #2)

Surprise, surprise. I have another book by Alyssa Cole. Lol, are we sensing a theme with the books I have on hold? I’ve heard such good things about this series so obviously, I’ve placed a hold on all the books my libraries have. This is another book that I know nothing about but I’m still excited to finally get to it.

6. The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

I’ve heard everyone talking about this book. Even though I didn’t love The Wedding Date, I really want to check this one out. I know this book follows a girl who is proposed to via the jumbotron and the guy who saves her from it. Personally, I think that premise sounds so cool and I can’t wait to see what happens with Carlos.

7. Say Yes To The Marquess (Castles Ever After #2)

Lol, I promise this is the last Tessa Dare book I have on hold. In December, I read Romancing the Duke and I really enjoyed it. There’s just something about her books that are addicting to me. I finally decided to put a hold on the sequel and the week is 13 weeks I think. At least I have some of their other books to give me my fix until this book is available 😛

8. The Vanishing Stair (Truly Devious #2)

The last and most recent book I put on hold is The Vanishing Stair. This is the sequel to Truly Devious and I’ve been anxious to see what happens next. After the ending of the first book, I have no idea what’s going to happen. This series is just so addicting and I love Maureen Johnson’s writing style. I’ll be waiting for a while but I’m excited to finally read this. 🙂


Those are all the books I currently have on hold at the library. Would you recommend any of the books I have on hold? Also what books do you have on hold at the library? 🙂
